Love Letters – YOU ARE REMARKABLE
I found out that an old love that I met in H.S., and had a passionate affair with in my early 20's, was going to drop by later in the evening. I have seen him a couple . Love letters are a strange thing. Once read We met through a Facebook group in early June and were together by the end of the month. Sometimes, when you meet someone new, the intensity of your Here are some ways to tell early on if love could be on the horizon for you.
I wanted to scoot my chair next to yours, and rest my head on your shoulder. I missed you by a minute, and I saw you walking away without me. My eyes and feet wanted to follow you, but I had to walk in a perpendicular direction. Today, you were standing very close to me and all the other things that I wanted today fell out of my head and were replaced by a single lucid certainty. I have not wanted anything recently as much as I wanted to turn around and hug you. Hello, This is a text that I sent to my ex-boyfriend who came back into my life recently.
It was the night of my 32nd birthday and I had just cried most of the day because I was confused about what was going on with us. After writing this and sending it, I quickly came to peace within myself. Just by putting this out there I instantly felt better. I am grateful that I wrote down exactly what I was feeling that night. I want to remember it always, even if it was a sad feeling, it was strong and I was in touch with it. I am enjoying a beautiful early warm summer night sitting on the sand just a foot from the water alone, in a great moment, beautiful and peaceful and I wish you were sitting next to me.
I know you would love this. That is all I ask. Call me a hopeless romantic… Blah blah blah. I just need to know that maybe in some amazing world we could be an option before we miss out on perfect night like this sitting on a beach at night living the dream. Dear Chinstrap, This is a reason to love you. I do not love you yet, but someday I might and I will look back on this moment and know exactly why. My curvy body full of protruding bones, the potential for androgyny of my face, the weakness I see in blue eyes.
How I never felt comfortable walking and that is why I dance and glide instead of solid sure footsteps, how I do not know what to do with my arms or how high to hold my head.
Because of my confidence and my self-respect, which originally stemmed from insecurity, I do not often show people that I have not always thought the best of myself, but I showed you and in a matter of seconds you took away the hurt I had carried inside myself for years.
Mon petit weinerschnitzel, Sablock. I have accidentally deleted my last love letter to you when we were still together in my blog. However, I will still write a love letter for you, even if we have separated for a while.
I love you, I still do.
Perhaps there will always be that silent, quiet space in my heart just for you and for everything that we have shared. When I remember you, I still smile and wish that somewhere out there, you are doing all right.
I may seem to appear that I ignore you, but I notice your presence. No, I do not hate you nor do I want you to suffer in life. The memory of pain, anger and madness seems to be just flickers of events and they no longer hurt. However, I still cherish the memories of love that you have given me.
We started with a hug and ended with a hug, your smile when we sleep next to each other, the first time you held my hand and waking up in the morning next to you. Perhaps in another lifetime, our souls will meet, just in different vessels and forms. May our souls bring each other joy and love, when they meet again. Perhaps when we have already fixed ourselves, we can nourish our friendship again. For now, my fervent wish for you to fly, to fly so high and to seek the balance of pride and humility, of talking and listening, to befriend your own darkness and shadows that it could bring light to you.
And when it seems your battle has become dreary and tiresome, remember that there will be people who are on your side, including me. I will always love you, even if it continues to change to other forms.
The maelstroms of unavoidable, iridescent truths are what we hold on to. The bittersweet dreams of yesteryear are what we never want to think of. The illusions you keep, the sadistic misery of marigolds, the taste of September.
Thoughts of these make me fade faster than Polaroids, leaving nothing but a shimmer, a secret, an unseen sign behind. I was all fucked up and confused and sweet, wandering with a broken heart and two left feet.
The girl who could barely live, let alone fall for you. The girl with scars on her arms and lies and tears made of ice and a head full of kaleidoscope dreams. The girl with a voice, the girl without a choice. You write about inhibitions and love, words dripping off the page; disillusioned and hopeful, caught in the ephemeral, neon dream world. You are the unknown, the sudden apparition of change, and the lights on the stage and the euphoria. I scatter those visions as if they were cursed glitterati.
You make up excuses for me, and you never ask. You wanted to be a star. There you go, you supernova.
You never said it. I loved you before, when you traipsed around, shining like that, gesticulating wildly, and making up wild things. When you were real and crazy. I loved you like the first, bittersweet summer love, which can only be shared; I loved you sadly and wildly. I loved you because we used to fit somehow, like pieces of a broken world, because I understood and you were unforgettable. I loved you and starflowers, your music and your words. Orpheus and Eurydice, undine and the knight, star-crossed lovers.
Please, this glance is packed with explosives, this sigh with screams, this word with tears. Gasp if you must, but breathe it in somehow. Inhale that you are loved beyond reason. These syllables are not just something to fill the silence.
Hello, to my one sweet love. I have hurt you, bad. I made a mistake, a wrong choice, a wrong turn. I told you the truth, as I have been ever so transparently truthful to you ever since I met you.
I know it had to hurt. I know what was coming. I told you the truth hoping that you would appreciate me, doing that, and starting over anew. You fear me hurting you, I fear myself hurting me hurting you. I fear myself losing you. I told the truth. Stop shoving me away. Yes, a mistake is a mistake.Vijay Deverakonda Feeling Shy After Reading Love Letters @ #Taxiwaala Grand Success Meet
Where is it now? Love me more than anything else? Anything else in the world? These words I cannot forget. I told the truth and still fight. Can you prove these words true? I was honest to you. A wanted to start over. You start pushing me away. But the stab I made hurt me more than it hurt you. I am here pride all lost, and you are, as you are a stone.
One mistake to end all? Or one love to survive all? Tell me what is dear to you. Once upon a time, you were the most agonizing near-yet-so-faraway. These days, you are the most beautiful faraway-once-so-near, and so, my love, here I will stay. I left that day wondering how I would get through the rest of my life without you but I had to do it because I knew it would make you happy.
You are in love with another now, the mother of your baby. I know this is the end and it makes me yearn for you even more. I can only blame the anger on the fact that I knew I was losing you. We had plans to be together and at the time that was all that mattered to us. Just know that since the day I met you, today, and every day after I will love you will every ounce that I have. There will never be another. I figured if I was lucky we could hang out a few times, maybe meet up at parties every once in awhile; because there was no way that I could have charmed you with the amount of burping that went on that night ha-ha.
But strangely enough you were still interested, and I was thrilled. I was like a little schoolgirl — anytime somebody asked me about you I would just smile silently and start turning red. I had never felt so connected to somebody in my entire life. Being with you gave me a sense of contentment that I had never known before, and those first few months that we were together were some of the happiest times of my life.
In those months that we walked around campus, sat on the quad, took pictures, watched The Office, That 70s Show, and plenty of movies; and stayed in bed until late in the afternoon talking about anything, I fell for you. And, as you well know, things did change.
What I need you to know is that I always want it to work with us — you are the one that makes me feel like everything really can be okay. And now, to my dismay, you have a girlfriend.
But I desperately want to be with you, with everything inside of me. Yet I know I could never muster up the courage to tell you. I never even see you or talk to you. I absolutely tremble uncontrollably.
Last time, tears welled up in my eyes because I was so utterly shocked. I mustered the courage to blurt out your name. Before you turned around, I studied you. I watched as you bent down to give a warm greeting to those adorable five-year-old girls chanting your name. Goodness, you have a way with children.
You turned, and my vision blurred. It was practically nothing but small talk, but it was something. My heart stopped beating and I was frozen. Unaware of anything or anyone else. You touched my arm as you turned to leave. Why does everything about you have to be so completely riveting? Your chiseled chin, beautifully defined jaw line.
That fierce look in your eyes—it could melt stone. I could listen to your voice on repeat for the rest of eternity. Your smile is my weakness. You are built, perfectly. The way you listen to someone who is talking to you — leaning forward with your face cupped in your hands, fully attentive. And you have that pensive, deeply intriguing look about you that makes it SO difficult to look away.
Why have I had butterflies around you for years, when most girls have different crushes every week? It has to mean something. I was terrified of rejection, but now that you have someone else to call your own, what am I to do? So what is it going to take for you to realize this? All I want is to be yours. I want to stop over-analyzing, stop dreaming up possibilities, options, outcomes. I just want to lie on your shoulder, close my eyes, and be enveloped in your beautiful complexity. Please realize that maybe.
This is meant to be. And while I am here waiting. Dear Navy Lady, Where do I start? I love you, I guess, would be a good start, right? I always have and always will. I met you when I was with my first long-term girlfriend and you took my breath away. We started messaging each other on the Internet and I literally thrived off your messages.
You were everything I wished for in one package of awesomeness. We became so close, best friends unlike any others. People would always question how close we were but we just shared a bond that no one could break at all. I never ever intended on acting on my feelings for you.
I always thought you deserved more — better. It came to a point where you were everything to me, every reason why I woke up in the morning, every reason why I breathed, ate, drank water, went into the sunlight. You were my serenity. No one could get me like you and no one still can. All I wanted was you in my bed, you in my arms, your breath down my back when I woke up, my hands on your hips as we laid still.
Even though I know all your secrets and you know mine. Even though you are miles and miles away and may be that way for a while. Fuck, girl, I love you. That is all it ever was. I wish you would tell me not to leave. No one EVER looked at me like that before. I love the little hum you do to yourself that you think no one hears I love how you inspire me. I Love that you make me want to be a better me. I love how we say those same dumb jokes all the time, almost everyday and they actually get funnier.
You make me feel beautiful and comfortable in my own skin. I love when you kiss my forehead or the bridge of my nose. Just tell me to stay and I will.
Love, what did you have in mind that I might try to arrange it? I look forward to seeing you, of course. Have a good morning. Like I do everyday. I hold back many thoughts from you. Things I want to say. My quietness last night was not for lack of words.
Then again, what have I left to protect? I discard draft after draft of these thoughts. Trying to keep this situation uncluttered by words of affection that may not be received… or reciprocated. I cannot lay them down. They have no strengthening effect on me. I am open, completely, to you. So, I try to keep my distance emotionally. Not only in the imagination.
Not just in my mind. I only feel well when I allow myself to be close to you. You are like ivy. You grow and climb my wall, over and back down the other side. Then I am again engulfed in you. And so I am, always. Only it feels differently at times. Sometimes I am so happy, so full of joy; air becomes intoxicating. Everything in the natural world is bright and sensational. And then… and then I am suffocated by fears that I truly share these feelings with myself, alone.
What a fool I am, to let my heart go like this. And to a man who seems to reside in a cocoon, waiting to emerge and become he knows not what. You are dangerously lovely and dear to me. I carefully weighed risks with young and imperfect judgment. I enjoy learning from them and feel that I better understand people when I learn things the hard way. I have little hesitation exposing myself to the judgment of others.
Yet, here we seem like a pendulum. I hold back words of affection, terms of endearment.

Then I wonder, and it feels so silly for me to entertain the thought a thought that is quickly dismissed by an extremely practical grain deep within medoes it matter?
Does it matter if he loves the idea of protecting me more than the feeling that he cannot live without me?
Of course, it matters, I say to myself. I deserve no less, I convince myself. But then, when I am with you, I wonder still. I wonder if, for you there is a need to be needed in that way. If it is a part of what is necessary for you to feel love for someone. You know, we all have triggers for love. Have I squelched yours by trying so hard to refuse your help? You say it was different before, when you were in love. You spoke of dreams of visions.
I wonder how much room we have to share dreams and visions of an exciting nature. Blending two families… our efforts would be so centered around that and visions for that are boundless. Before I had children. There were even times, after children were integrated into my life, that I thought of going out into the community and serving in some way.
But, there is no way I can be a good and present mother for my children at the same time. So, my dreams are boring. They are not as exciting as what you are accustomed to, I guess. I would support and encourage you to follow your inclinations. But, my life is too full to attach myself to any purpose other than being a wife and mother.
All else seems a vanity to me when set aside without a family and impossible to include with a family. We could go for a drive. Those three months we were together were the best of my life without a doubt.
We had a relationship people envied. And I loved it. But for some stupid reason I gave it up and ended it. I realize I probably lost you forever, but I want you to know a few things.
We have been through hell together. We have been through more than most couples have been at our age. I am so sorry for my mistake and I doubt that you will ever take me back. But I want you to know that I prayed to God for you to forgive me, for you to understand my mistake, and if it was possible to put some love back in your heart. I wish I could see you, I wish we could make up. How much I miss our long walks in the golf course, hanging out in the back of the truck with you, my little brothers baseball games.
And now every time I hear our song it kills me inside. I just wanted you to know that I love you. Until the world ends, because I will love you in death as well. And even though I am only 16 and I made a promise to myself and God that I would marry no one but you. I never break a promise. I love you, Joe. I think about the dream where we put children in tree hollows and bulwarks and try to return the whale to the sea.
You tumbled into the water after the sea creature with eyes like stars and I was convinced you had died. My heart stopped and I drowned on land.
You had gone off the dock to follow the beast into water that looked like a storm on black glass, and you drowned me right along with you. You really could destroy me at any time you wanted. But you never, ever did. Why did you ever let someone like me glimpse your hurting soul?

I miss the one time we danced together in the pub, with you pretending to be my boyfriend and my hand up your shirt. I miss the way you always let me massage your head even though I never did it right. I miss trying to get you to stay up late, I miss the way I always thought that we almost kissed, or how I ever thought I could just fuck you and leave you, the way I aspire to with everyone else.
I miss the conviction with which I could tell everyone else but you that I loved you. I miss the way that, without bruising you, my body came to know that it belonged with yours.
Things are bad, but you probably figured that when we took the town with my penniless purse and my kiddy cherry patterned umbrella, eating poppy bread and cake in the park by the train station. I think I am going to get deported soon. That I wish I could take back the time I left your pretty house in the country and you asked for a kiss goodbye and I laughed in your face. That I wanted to kiss you the night my rat died and you let me get drunk so you could take care of me.
That I am tired of giving you the husk of my honesty, a soft song with the lyrics hollowed out, stringing you along and skittering away in shame. I covered my face because I could never think of you looking back at a photograph of me and smiling.
- The moment I met the love of my life: Three writers tell all
I just love you. About 18 months later, the cosmos finally heard me and sent a reply. One hot, dusty July night I was at a party for work. Through the crowd I saw Giles. With tousled hair, stubble and a dark tan, he had the air of a South American bandit on the run. He was making a group of people laugh.
The moment I met the love of my life: Three writers tell all
I reckoned he could definitely pick a restaurant and he had muscles to spare. After our second date — lunch this time — Giles was driving me home when he got a flat tyre. He parked by the side of the road, got out and changed the tyreby himself, in about 10 minutes. And Giles is mine. Back then, we were in a bar in central London for birthday drinks for my friend Joanne — his sister.
I thought little of it afterwards, as neither of us was single, but over the years I kept learning more about him from Joanne: All the superficial boxes were ticked, apart from one: Even so, I had high hopes that one day we would be single at the same time. Anyway, a miracle occurred. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted.
But once in awhile, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. Katherine Mansfield to John Middleton Murry My darling, Do not imagine, because you find these lines in your private book that I have been trespassing. You know I have not — and where else shall I leave a love letter? For I long to write you a love letter tonight. You stood, quite naked, bending forward a little — talking.
It was only for an instant. I saw you — I loved you so — loved your body with such tenderness. Just below that bone that sticks out at the back of your neck you have a little mole.
It is partly because we are young that I feel this tenderness — I love your youth — I could not bear that it should be touched even by a cold wind if I were the Lord. We two, you know, have everything before us, and we shall do very great things — I have perfect faith in us — and so perfect is my love for you that I am, as it were, still, silent to my very soul.
I want nobody but you for my lover and my friend and to nobody but you shall I be faithful. I am yours forever. Those velvet nights … Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald Photograph:
